TOC(s) affected

Engineering work is taking place between Borough Green & Wrotham and Ashford International, closing various lines.

As a result if this, the following alterations will apply:

Trains between London Victoria and Ramsgate via Maidstone East will only run between London Victoria and Borough Green and Wrotham.  

Paddock Wood Line:

Trains between London Victoria and Ramsgate via Tonbridge and Dover will split at Ashford with some services running between Ashford and Ramsgate via Canterbury West.  These trains will run from London Victoria instead of London Charing Cross because of further engineering work near Grove Park.
